Released together with the MAQuillAGE True Rouge (reviewed here), the Limited Edition Styling Eyes comes in 4 variations, from neutrals to pink and green. Each retails at S$69 for 3.5g of product, made in Japan. Find out more about this collection here.
I have a neutral set for you today, it’s BR 743 – consisting of beiges, brows and a lovely taupe.
Each Styling Eyes comes in a slim and compact black casing – very light yet sturdy, perfect for storing in makeup pouches and drawers. Inside, you will find 5 shades – base, highlighting, lids, transition colour and also a shade right at the corner for lining the eyes.
Together with this palette, there are 2 applicators – a double-ended round sponge tip applicator, a flat sponge tip applicator for lining the eyes and a blending brush. I have not tried using these applicators because I always remove them all from palettes, I prefer using my own brushes but they look promising, soft and gentle to touch.
Below is a chart showing how to use the MAQuillAGE Styling Eyes.
Let’s take a closer look at the MAQuillAGE Styling Eyes in BR 743 and a little description of each colour;-
glittery deep brown
sheer glittery champagne-beige
All the 5 shades have decent colour payoff with (4) being the most pigmented and (5) being the sheerest. I usually layer (5) over my eyeshadows for a more sparkling effect and (4) along my upper lash line to darken and define my crease. (3) is a beautiful shade which I always use as a lid colour with (2) being the transition hue along the crease.
These eyeshadows did not crease on my lids even without a primer (I don’t usually have problems with eyeshadows creasing) and they lasted on my lids for as long as 8 hours with minimal fading at end of the night. I also experienced very little fall-out which is a plus for shimmery and glittery shades.
Texture of all the shades are smooth – the glittery shades don’t feel gritty at all.
I like this palette because the colours are what I would use very often but not love. The colours and textures are not totally unique. It’s a beautiful palette to have, not something I would run out to buy right away tho as I have many similar shades.
If you do not own a palette that comprehends the shades above, this could be something you are looking for. The taupe is beautiful and I think my swatch above didn’t justify that at all.
For the price, I think this palette is value for money as it can transform a day look into a night one within seconds. It also contains shades from start to finish – literally all you need in a single palette. The colours are very wearable and work friendly.
Look featuring this palette coming right up. Another variation caught my attention is GR 131 – if you want something wearable with a pop of colour, remember to check it out.
Thank you for reading.
